Even Penguins Need Slip Protection!


Gentoo penguins are the fastest underwater swimming penguins (incredible speeds of 36km/h or 22mph), they thrive in some of the world’s harshest environment and even build shelters out of local stones to protect their nests, yet even these fantastic creatures need help with slip protection!

The superb aquarium, The Deep, in Hull, northern England recently opened their new enclosure complete with swimming pool, snow generator and even a riverside view, within 10 minutes it was closed due to the penguins slipping. A new anti-slip floor will be installed for slip protection to keep them on their feet.

Who says that slip stories can’t have a happy ending?

Question: Why don’t penguins like rock music?

Answer: They only like sole.
